Default LOTS OF MONEY, WHAT SHOULD I GET?

Well, modacar messed up so I get refunded my 1500 dollars, I was gonna get tokico illuminas and skunk 2 coils along with a set of gt3's from rota. Now that I look at that set up it probably wasnt the best, what should I get for suspension now?

If you were refunded with modacar store credit get the GC & Koni thingy. If they gave you actual money then get the Omnipowers. Kteller.com has them.

i've used both the tein ss and koni yellows w/ gc coilovers.

there is NO comparison. koni makes such a better shock than tein it's amazing. plus you're stuck the soft *** springs they give you. the SS are absolute garbage on so many levels i don't even want to get into it anymore.

never used the omnis, and i don't plan on it either. there's no flexibility. what if you find them to be too soft or too stiff? you're pretty much screwed.

that is your best bet by far. it will grow and change with your needs and taste. go look at what most of the race teams are running. NOT tein

Retail is like $141 each. Look in the sponsor marketplace here on H-T. You can get a set of Koni's for under $500 shipped. wiredspeed.com had the best sale going on, was $475 plus shipping.

better yet, pick up a used old set of koni reds for dirt cheap, send them to koni to have them revalved for higher spring rates and turned into the adjustable yellows.

i wish i would have done that.

What kind of ride quality do you like?

Those Omni's are stiff! 560 lbs/ft front spring rate and 336lbs/ft rear!

opinions are like ******** everyone has them and no one likes any one elses.


there is PLENTY of tech info on different suspension setup's in this forum.

these damn "i have xxxxx what should i do with it" threads are lame and pointless


thats my opinion sorry if you don't like it. not alot of people do i have goten used to it though
